Details

Roma, or Romani people, have been discriminated against for centuries. Since their liberation from slavery in 1848, the Roma have largely been impoverished and have faced stereotypes and hate speech from the greater public. Their treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this discrimination.
